    Only half serious about this; per Tele's post, you could make a go of merely adequate rather than stellar sound.

    The trick is to have only great material.

    Its the left pointer finger, the fretboard hand for guitar. The keyboard at work is light touch. Thing is I never learned to type with all the fingers however. Back in the 60's Typing lessons in school were pretty much limited to Girls taking Home-ec and Secretarial/office classes and consisted of sitting in front of an old mechanical typewriter. It wasn't a class many boys took unless they were being trained to take over the family business and needed office skills. I didn't plan on taking business classes as an course of study. PC's wouldn't be around for at least another 30 years and even though I was repairing some of the first PC's made as an electronic tech I knew you didn't have to be an expert at working a keyboard in order to repair one. (I still don't even though it would be handy) By the time they had become so common place in the 90's I had already been playing guitar, Piano, bass and violin for several decades. In short I wasn't able to retrain the hands after being a musician for 40 years. I jumbled the keys playing chords so I became very proficient using 2 fingers and even earn a living at a keyboard now. Unfortunately it does wear on the fingers a bit more but I think I can get by till I retire in a couple of years and then I probably wont use one any more then my recording studio demands. I tried sleeping last night without a splint and that finger curled up worse then before. Wasn't sure I could straighten it out again at first. I iced it down while having my morning coffee and it was down to 40 this morning so I stuck the hand out the window driving to work and it got numb. Its felt good most of the day but it hasn't healed any that I can detect. Anyway, its Friday and I have two days I'm going to try and keep it immobile. If its no soap I'll give the doctor a call and see how soon I can get the second shot. I'm surprised it didn't work better. I got shots for my lower back. had a pinched phytic nerve which produced the wort pain you can imagine. One shot and it was highly reduced. 2 shots and I've been good for 9 years. Maybe they watered down the solution. It was kind of strange how they brought the needle in half filled already. Could have been tap water for all I know.
